When I received this Rose Porcelain along with Bleu de Paris for review, my first reaction was – Oh no! I can’t wear pink!
It brought back the memories of me using my mom’s eyeshadows as a child, I remember seeing a lot of pinks back there, was it a hit color in the 90′s?
I am proud to tell my mom today: Hey mum, I can share my eye shadows with you now
It took me a while to dig into this palette because I am biased, and also for the fear of looking punched in the eye.
It’s a 5 cool tone eyeshadow – from light yellow, pink to plum. They are shimmery hence easier to work with, and easy to erase if you make a mistake!
The colors are very smooth, and no color fall-out experienced.
To work on your eye – start with the lightest color over your lids then add the darkest shade (plum) from half of your crease and blend it outwards. You can use it to underline your eyes too.
It’s advisable to always use the darkest color, or another dark color to add in the pink, otherwise your eyes will look strangely puffy.
I used my regular eyeliner to line my lid then blend it out with the plum so there is no obvious line. It looks blue-ish in this picture, but it is actually plumish.
Not that hard to use after all
I like how the colors make my eye pop without looking ridiculous or weird. It’s definitely a work friendly color, and you don’t have to use too much time to get the colors together compared with smokey eye.
Topped with a gloss, you are good to go!
If you decide to go vampy, it doesn’t look too bad either
Overall, it’s a really pleasant surprise that I can wear pink on my eye too! I certainly do not think that all shades of pink will work on my eyes but at least this palette does! I like how sheer the color is and how they can be built from light to opaque. It’s a nice palette, but if you have darker skintone, the colors might not show up very well.
